Orthopaedic Services & Procedures

Dr. Feltham considers himself a joint preservationist, and thus limits his practice to preventing the need for partial or total joint replacement and does not perform any joint replacement surgeries. Baker’s Cysts and peri meniscal cysts are also operated on by arthroscopic and open techniques. Dr. Feltham performs all ligament, meniscal and tendon surgeries around the knee and shoulder as well as most fracture repairs around the ankle, knee, shoulder, and elbow.
